Hi there,

Has anyone been using old Zuiko-OM manual-focus lenses with their E-system DSLRs? How do they work together? Great?

I'm thinking of getting some old Zuiko-OM primes (eg. 50mm f1.8, 24mm f2.8 and using them via a OM-to-E-system adapter ring with my E-330, mostly for low-light photography on-a-budget.

Any feedback would be great, regardless of having used such a setup before or not.

Thanks.

This site should answer a lot of your questions:

On the OM page there's links at the bottom to sites that review Zuiko's line up of over 60 OM lenses on a 4/3 body.


I've personally "played" with an inexpensive 80-200mm with a 2x teleconverter...but for regular shooting I stick to the 4/3 lenses.
